Finding Suitable Pet Names Shouldn't Be Stressful

Jul 7, 2008
With the numerous pet names available, you want to find one that is unusual yet captures the essence of your pet. What you need to do is start with some criteria for finding just the right name. This could include a cute and funny name or a name that you know none eof your friends has for their pet. Pets easily become part of the family so the name has to be one that you really like and reflects the relationship that you have with your cat, dog, rabbit, hamster, fish or any other type of pet. As you see from reading about pets and watching television, pets have a personality of their own, yet they can take on some of your persona as well.

Some of the things you should think about when choosing a name is that pets usually understand and hear only one or two syllables. Why do you think the words used for training are short and easy to say? You also need to pick a name that is easy for you and other members of your family to say and remember as well. Pick a name that won't embarrass you when you have to call out to your pet to get it to come to you when you are playing with it outdoors.

If you will be placing the pet in a kennel on times when you have to be out of town, it is wise to choose something out of the ordinary so that your cat or dog won't be confused and answer to the name when it is actually meant for some other pet at the kennel. This is also the case when you are in the park with your dog. Rover is a very popular name for dogs. It is possible for you to call Rover and have several dogs come up to you because they also have the same name.

When choosing the name you should remember that your pet will grow up and become an adult. Therefore the name that you choose for a baby may not seem as nice when you apply it to an adult pet. You shouldn't rush the process of finding a name. Wait for a few days or a week when you bring the pet home so that it can get to know you and its surroundings. Then its personality will start to show through and you can name it according to its behavior, still keeping in mind the other considerations already mentioned.

There are thousands of names for literally every kind of pet available online. Spend some time browsing these names and make a list of the ones that appeal to you. You may even have a family meeting so that everyone can contribute his/her likes and dislikes and come to a consensus that suits everyone. There are names available in every letter of the alphabet and in various languages. You don't have to stick to the tried and true by can choose names of famous pets or names for historical figures. You may even have a favorite pet from a movie and that might be the name you choose
